Lets talk about regularity for a minute as we know fibre and probiotics are good for keeping you regular. I am one of those people who really wasn't regular. Never have been, even when eating lots of dark greens, fibre and drinking TONS of water. I am happy to say that I am now regular each and everyday. I do notice also a difference in my energy and mood since being on a probiotic.
Renew Life Ultimate Flora Critical Care 50 Billion daily and I drink a lot of water. Usually 60-80oz a day that is on top of tea or coffee. I have taken a probiotic in the past but it wasn't strong enough to do much for my gut. Having the 50 billion a day has helped a lot. If I forget one, I am ready for the next dose. I have even noticed a difference in my seasonal allergies that I normally struggle with and also the environmental allergies. I also haven't been sick when the kids or people I support have been sick! If I do get sick it seems to be not as bad and less time sick. Big Bonus for me as I work in the health care field!
Did you know there are over 500 types of bacteria in the digestive system? The two most prevalent are Lactobacilli (most prevalent in the small intestine) and Bifidobacterium (most prevalent in the large intestine). Keeping these bacterias in their prime is super important part of a healthy digestive system this is where using a probiotic comes to help.
Ultimate Flora Critical Care contains therapeutic levels of both Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium, making it the most complete and effective probiotic supplement on the market. Each capsule provides 50 Billion active cultures from 10 different strains in a ‘once a day’ serving (30 billion active cultures of Bifidobacterium and 20 billion active cultures of Lactobacilli and Lactococcus). Ultimate Flora Critical Care also contains FOS (fructooligosaccharides), which is an optimal food source for probiotics. FOS aids in the colonization of probiotics in the intestinal tract.

I am now a firm believer in keeping a healthy happy gut and the rest of our health will follow suit. I have read/listened to some people talk about the gut health and how important it is for optimal overall health. I am amazed at how our gut is the center of our health.
I have recently started my kids on the Ultimate Flora Kids 10 Billion Probiotics. I am hoping this will help reduce the antibiotics this fall/winter with my daughter.
